'Testbed' was a project
initiated by Will Alsop and Kevin Cassandra at a space, associated
with their architectural practice, with the intention of developing
the site along similar lines to the Riverside studios in Hammersmith
as a venue for dance and performance works.
The space had a special
appeal because of a total lack of a contrived aesthetic: an emptiness
that reflected how I was thinking about Limber Gym. 'Testbed' was an
appropriate site for self-improvement and for a work attempting to
explore ideas of simultaneity using a number of disparate elements.
This one-night stand [the moment passes] also contributed a
relevant factor to the experience of the work.
empty shop that I regularly see converted into a gym seems to reflect
the lack of attachment of desperate individuals: simultaneously
'working out' in their personal self-conscious worlds: as a part of
the human consciousness that dictates that everything is open to
improvement, (absurdly and possibly inadvertently), to the point of
destruction. This element creates the manifold for me and 'MUST HAVE
DEFINITION' is the call sign.
